Vastavam Web: Television host Kathi Karthika who shot to fame with Telugu Bigg Boss season one hosted by Jr. NTR has contested the Dubbaka by-election. But she failed to create an impact in the poll. All her efforts went in vain as she managed to win a mere less than 1000 votes in the election. The anchor barely managed to win 636 votes, which is just 100 more than the votes polled under NOTA. Karthika had contested in Dubbaka from All India Forward Bloc (AIFB), a left-wing nationalist political party that has strength in West Bengal. The AIFB is a left ideologist party that enjoys a good hold in West Bengal. The party established by patriotic hero Subhash Chandra Bose in 1939, re-established itself as an independent political party post-independence.
